Murder comes in two familiar forms. Both are heinous and most unlikely to gather any sympathy for the actual act itself from anyone, whatever the circumstances or the reasons. Whether as a crime of passion with high emotions or a cold dispassionate plot to take life in order to gain in some way, the act strikes us all as somehow inhuman. Beneath us as civilised beings. But however we cloak our animal instincts the need to remove a human being and gain relief from abuse or gain from money, the term is just the same - MURDER.Robert Louis Stevenson, Arthur Conan Doyle, J M Barrie, W W Jacobs and many others bring their literary heft to bear in as calculating a way as any killer could. 1 - Short Stories About Murder - An Introduction2 - The Murders in the Rue Morgue - Part 1 by Edgar Allan Poe3 - The Murders in the Rue Morgue - Part 2 by Edgar Allan Poe4 - Markheim by Robert Louis Stevenson5 - The Vendetta by Guy de Maupassant6 - The Story of B 24 by Arthur Conan Doyle7 - A Jury of Her Peers by Susan Glaspell8 - The Trial for Murder by Charles Dickens9 - The Caballero's Way by O Henry10 - Better Dead by J M Barrie11 - The Easter Egg by Saki12 - Mother Sauvage (La Mere Sauvage) by Guy de Maupassant13 - The Black Cat by Edgar Allan Poe14 - Cheating The Gallows by Israel Zangwill15 - In A Grove by Ryunosuke Akutagawa16 - August Heat by W F Harvey17 - Brothers by Sherwood Anderson18 - The Green Light by Barry Pain19 - The Hand by Guy de Maupassant20 - The Cask of Amontillardo by Edgar Allan Poe21 - A Pastoral Horror by Arthur Conan Doyle22 - In The Dark by Edith Nesbit23 - Lost Hearts by M R James24 - Ben Pitcher's Elly by Mary E Mann25 - The Hounds of Fate by Saki26 - Claude Gueux by Victor Hugo 27 - The Repairer of Reputations - Part 1 by Robert W Chambers28 - The Repairer of Reputations - Part 2 by Robert W Chambers29 - The Limping Ghost by Frederick Cowles30 - The Story of the Green House, Wallington by Allen Upward31 - The Tell Tale Heart by Edgar Allan Poe32 - Talma Gordon by Pauline E Hopkins33 - The Moonlit Road by Ambrose Bierce34 - The Murderer by Mikhail Bulgakov35 - For the Blood is the Life by F Marion Crawford36 - A Twin Identity by Edith Stewart Drewery37 - The Octoroon's Revenge by Ruth D Todd38 - An Expiation by Arabella Kenealy39 - God Sees The Truth But Waits by Leo Tolstoy40 - The Kit Bag by Algernon Blackwood41 - The Legend of Saint Julian the Hospitaller by Gustave Flaubert42 - The Murder in an Omnibus by Harold Begbie43 - Lord Arthur Savile's Crime - Part 1 by Oscar Wilde44 - Lord Arthur Savile's Crime - Part 2 by Oscar Wilde45 - The Absence of Mr Glass by G K Chesterton46 - The Middle Toe of the Right Foot by Ambrose Bierce47 - The Lie by Leonid Andreyev48 - The Three Sisters by W W Jacobs49 - Mateo Falcone by Prosper Merimee
